for a moment.

today i saw the most adorable three month old baby boy.


he had the most angelic little face, chubby cheeks and bright, happy eyes.

and for a moment i let my mind wander.

what if we had another?

and then, almost as if it were a sign from above, his binky fell out.

and he screamed for 15-20 minutes straight.

and the thought vanished.

at least for now...

Oh don't you love those moments? I woke from a dream last night. I saw my little Haitian (is that a word?) daughter playing w/ Soph like sisters and smiling up at me. I'm still trying to process what to do w/ that.

After we lost our last baby and my fertility, I was, of course, inconsolable. My best friend gave me her new baby to hold at every opportunity to help fill my empty arms. After a few months had gone by and I really wasn't any better, she decided to start using humor. She would call me when the baby was screaming at 3 AM and ask if I wanted to come take care of him. ;) Only she could have done that for me!

That is too funny because I have an adorable 1 year old that reminds me daily I'm not fit to have more! He has the loudest scream I've ever heard from ANY BABY! SERIOUS! :) But, I do adore him. Love your post about Lady Gaga. I wish I could edit some of her music because me and my kids love to dance to her!

Ha ha!

Every time I think that same thought, my own kids start screaming. It's great birth control.

I do love little babies, though. Maybe it's time I had another one...
